Heavy rain, gusty winds to arrive Thursday in Thurston County. And more is on the way
From The Olympian:
Get out your rain gear. Olympia will experience wet, windy weather Thursday and Friday and later this weekend. Moderate to heavy rain and gusty winds are forecast for the lowland regions of Western Washington on Thursday. This will lead to slick road conditions and minor flooding in areas with poor drainage, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.
In the Olympia area, the forecast says winds may reach 20 miles per hour Thursday with gusts up to 29 miles per hour. This could cause tree limb damage and localized power outages, the NWS said.
AccuWeather predicts at least five storms will move across the northern Pacific and pass over the Northwest into early November. This will bring bouts of heavy rain and mountain snow separated by one to two days of drier weather.
Between Thursday and Friday mornings, up to a half-inch of rain will descend upon the Olympia and Tacoma areas, according to a NWS forecast.
